Contrary to common folklore, placing your phone inside a “zip lock” bag with rice does not remove the liquid from the inner workings of the device. The presence of salts and acids contained within most liquids will continue to corrode and damage the vital components inside your phone, even after the liquid has dried. Therefore, resting your phone in rice is not an appropriate solution for water damage repair.
